Size of snowflakes?

Recommended Posts

Hello community,

 

is anybody aware if there's a cfg setting to adjust the size of the P3Dv4 snowflakes?

For my taste they are much too big and I want to have them a lot smaller.

 

Many thanks

Hi Günter,

to my best knowledge, rain and snow are controlled by texture files in "\Prepar3D v4\Texture\" named "rain*" and "snow*". There are some addons that replace those, making snow and rain look different, like PreciptFx (?)

Best regards

I use precipitfx and have been happy with the results.

Thanks for answering.

 

I have indeed Precipit, but have had enabled the ones from ENVTEX. Changed that and found the Precipit ones better, yes.

Any sort of performance hit associated with PrecipitFx...??

No. In fact I think it's better.

thanks for the hint.

 

In my PrecipParticle.fx is the line:

//Control how long streaks face and how big they are.
    float height = cb_fQuadSize * cb_fQuadSizeHeightScale / (2.4 - (cb_uPrecipType * 1.65));
    float width = cb_fQuadSize * cb_fQuadSizeWidthScale / (1.0 - (cb_uPrecipType * 0.25));

 

I don't know if it changed meanwhile by LM or a tools (EnvShade, EnvTex or Precipit)?

 

 

Changed it now to 

//Control how long streaks face and how big they are.
    float height = cb_fQuadSize * cb_fQuadSizeHeightScale / (4.4 - (cb_uPrecipType * 1.65));
    float width = cb_fQuadSize * cb_fQuadSizeWidthScale / (3.0 - (cb_uPrecipType * 0.25));

 

and is also better.

That was exactly what I've searched for! thanks!

Just Checking,

Will these adjustments change height/width of both Rain and Snow effects?

I’ll experiment when I get home but this sounds like a great tweak.

 

thx
